brighter shade than pale 16 - autumn II

I wanted to create another post expressing my autumnal mood. I have already said it on the blog that there is something about this autumn that I find particularly delightful. The weather has been lovely, I have been drinking extra many lattes in the city and I'm reading such good books (I got a new stack yesterday at the library). This morning I realised that we have clearly entered a colder season; I'm at home with one sick child. I'm also a grass widow as A is spending the next days in the UK. But I have the best entertainment. In the mail today I got season 3 of Downton Abbey, which I hadn't seen. Cannot wait to let Maggie Smith crack me up with her one-liners!

  1. I can't get enough of autumnal posts, so you can keep them coming. I still haven't seen the 3rd season of Downton Abbey, I can't wait to order it too. I've started watching Breaking Bad and I have a good feeling about it.

  2. I love the photography style of these autumnal shots, Lisa - very evocative and spot on for the season as the weather cools from tomorrow here in the UK.
